We just returned from Taormina and spent two nights last weekend. It was perfect. they had such great service and it was so beautiful. All the rooms seem to have a sea view even though we requested and upgraded to that. The proximity to Corso Umberto and the Greek theatre could not have been better. The concierge recommended two great... More

I've been to many fantastic hotels and this one may very well be the nicest to date.. The rooms are lovely, the staff is very helpful and professional. The view from the room, the breakfast terrace as well as from the pool is stunning. Prices for meals and drinks are costly, but that's to be expected in this type of... More

We stayed there for 2 nights and everyday we got blown by this beautiful hotel. The hotel is conveniently located in a tourist area, right next to the Greek theater which I love. You can walk around in the area without driving too far and see a lot of things before ending your day. Few steps and you are back... More

Such an incredibly classy hotel - impeccable service (among the best we've ever experienced) and food combined with exceptional location and facilities. A true jewel - would not even consider any other in Taormina!

Simply the best restaurant view I have ever had in Europe, Mount Etna was erupting and I fell in love with this place. The hotel is located in central Taormina, which in itself is worth a visit, old and quaint with some magic. I cannot fault it - yes it is expensive, but you get everything that you pay for.... More

The Timeo is in a great location - simply a beautiful spot. The staff are extremely attentive and the food is delicious. The link with Villa Sant'Andrea works well too and it's easy to visit the beach. HOWEVER, i was paying ~850 euros per night for a room that was not worth it. The room has no noise insulation whatsoever.... More
